THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION’S HIGH LEVEL INSPECTORATE TEAM UNDER THE AUSPICES OF PROF. D. ANSU SONII INSPECTS SCHOOL FACILITIES AND ENGAGES EDUCATION STAKEHOLDERS IN NIMBA COUNTY.
( March 16, 2022- Nimba County, Liberia) – In fulfillment of the implementation of the Pro-poor Agenda pillow 1 “Power to the people,” the government of Liberia through the Ministry of Education has embarked on a comprehensive verification, supervision and evaluation of the 156 public schools’ renovation and rehabilitation as well as the expansion and construction of 25 Senior Secondary Schools in 25 education districts that have not had a senior high school since the establishment of this Nation.
The intent of the Inspectorate Team headed by the Minister of Education is to empower Liberians with quality, affordable and accessible education for all.
Meanwhile, the Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Education continues to engage school administrators nationwide by conducting stakeholders and Town hall meetings.
The purpose of these meetings is to gather realistic and factual information relating to the improvement of education and the maintenance of schools in the various counties and districts across the country.
Henceforth, the Inspectorate Team commenced the tour with Margibi, followed by Bong, Lofa and currently touring Nimba County, conducting stakeholders engagements with students, Parents, teachers, local authorities as well as the inspection of schools supported under the Improving Results in Secondary Education ( IRISE) Project.
Speaking during town hall meetings with stakeholders at various locations, the Minister of Education, Prof. D. Ansu Sonii encouraged school administrators to design strategies in a bid to keep students in schools.
He also said, putting students out of schools for being late could not be the best alternative to punishing anyone as it deprives them of learning materials for the day.
The Minister emphasised that instead of sending students home for lateness, school authorities or administrators should design minor punishments within the premises of the school to allow them sit in class.
The Minster also reiterates “the Government of Liberia is committed to ensuring that no child is left behind in attaining quality, accessible and affordable education”.
In furtherance, the Education Boss, Prof. Sonii has instructed all public-school administrators to desist from refusing students to enter schools because of lack of registration fees and putting students out due to not making full payment of said fees. But instead, the desirous students should be allowed in school while their parents gradually pay their fees.
Minister sonii spoke when he visited several public High schools in Nimba County which include Karn High School, Duoplay High School, Yahnplay Public School, Garplay Public High School, Leamah Public School, Bahn High School among others.
In the same vein, school administrators and students in separate remarks appreciated President George M. Weah through the Minister of Education for his vision for the improvement of the Country’s Education System.
They believe that the expansion, rehabilitation, renovation, and the construction of Senior Secondary Schools across the Country demonstrate his commitment for the betterment of the sector.
Speaking briefly in a joyous mood, the Nimba County Education Officer (CEO), Mr. Moses Dologbay assured Minister Sonii and Team that under his watch those projects will closely be monitored for quality work outcomes.
In conclusion, the citizens of Nimba hailed the government of Liberia and pledged their commitment to President Weah for taking education to the people for the empowerment, improvement and development of the Republic of Liberia.
